Humba Or Pork Braised With Brown Sugar And Vinegar

Humba or pork braised with brown sugar and vinegar is one of those Filipino dishes that is hard for me not to make here in the US. It is one of the filipino foods that I was always accustomed to eating when there was an occasion over there. Not only this dish is yummy but also the ingredients are very simple which you can probably already find in stock in your kitchen.

I always make mine the way my mama make hers and that's put the pork first in a pot and the rest of the ingredients and those are the slice onions, crushed garlic, whole peppercorns, 2 or 3 bay leaves, brown sugar, soy sauce and vinegar. I let it all boil and get a chance to mix all the ingredients and then taste it and adjust the its taste according to my liking. For me, this dish is done when all the liquid is pretty much evaporated and the grease or oil gets separated on top from actual liquid!

Anyway, I made this dish the other day and it was by far the best one I have ever made yet. It almost tasted exactly like mama's, the only thing missing was banana blossoms! When I get a chance to go to the Asian store again that will be on the top of my list to get!
